OUR REVOLUTIONARY SPIRIT: A SHORT FILM FOR RUTGERS’ 250th ANNIVERSARY
This short film tells the stories of Rutgers trailblazers, blending archival photos and footage with narrators, scenes, and stories from the Rutgers of today.
“Rutgers was founded in 1766, by revolutionary thinkers in revolutionary times,” says one of the film’s narrators. “Two hundred fifty years later, Rutgers people are still making a difference. They’re still coming up with revolutionary ideas and changing the world.”
